WAREHAM — There was no reason Monica DeMello and Kathleen Allen should have met. But when they did, in the dark of night this weekend on a lonely stretch of two-lane highway, it was fatal.
Both were young and from Middleborough, but the similarities end there. DeMello, an 18-year-old Gordon College freshman home for Easter, was deeply religious and had a keen sense that her life would involve helping others. She didn’t smoke or drink alcohol.
